K9 Kenzo, the one who ended your life needs to be treated like all evil, cowardly persons who willfully and deliberately take the life of ANY officer. It is hard to subdue the feelings of anger, outrage and pain that come from thinking of your suffering. Now you can rest in God's loving arms, and never suffer again. He has taken a star and written your name on it - a reminder that you are now in eternal safety, peace and joy. Shine down on your partner and let him, your family and department know that all is well.

I am sad to learn of the passing of a hero in K9 Kenos. I believe our Heavenly Father has welcomed him home into his loving arms where he will now patrol the Golden Streets of Heaven. May the Lord deliver Blessings, Comfort and Peace to his Handler, Family and all members of the Pima County Sheriff's Department, Arizona.

Lord God of unfailing love, to those families of our beloved nation, the United States of America, who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a Law Enforcement K-9 family member in the Line-of-Duty, help us to provide support. Allow us to be their rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. Lord God, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus’ name, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.

Scriptures Supporting Law Enforcement K-9s:

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4 ESV]

“And ALL flesh shall see the salvation of God.” [Luke 3:6 ESV]

“For NOT ALL flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.” [1 Corinthians 15:39 ESV]

“Well done, good and faithful servant.” [Matthew 25:23 ESV]
